Smitten Films takes all of your media - thousands of pictures and hours of video - and precisely edits them to create a film that can be enjoyed by your family and friends around the world and for generations to come.
Although we see them as young children, kids have really stepped up in a big way during this challenging time. When founder @lisa.k.ridd daughter, Poppy, asked for a sewing machine to help make masks, Lisa was proud of how her daughter wanted to be a part of the solution. It's been inspirational to see all the ways young kids have stepped in to give back. They may be small, but their hearts are big ❤️ #inspiration #giveback
Memorial Day weekend may have looked a little different this year, but the opportunity to explore a new hiking trail, start a new book you've been dying to read, and create memories with your family are still very much open. While many vacations have been cancelled the past few months, it's important to shift our perspective and appreciate these uninterrupted days we'll never get back. Today and everyday we’re grateful to those who have sacrificed so much for our country 🇺🇸 Check out this fun video of @lisa.k.ridd and her family learning to make ice cream together as they make the most of this long weekend and celebrate family time 🍦#memorialdayweekend2020 #familymemories #grateful
Here's a sweet reminder that Father's Day is almost here! These days reminiscing on all the special moments you've shared together with your family is even more meaningful. And what a better way to show how thankful you are to have your husband by your side than by gifting him a film to remember all the joyful times with him and his kids. We have just one spot left so contact us today to start the ultimate gift! #fathersdaygifts #thoughtfulgifts
Hoping everyone took some time this weekend to unwind and reset. Self care is more important than ever these days. Finding the time can be challenging, but in order to take care of our kids we must first take care of ourselves. Loving this beautiful illustration by @kimothy.joy #selfcare #takingcareofmama #mamatime
Though the days are long, the tantrums are abundant, and quarantine life seems endless, we're grateful for our health and this time together. Loving this sweet reminder of the most important takeaway from this difficult time that @niki.and.crew created with her family ❤️ #grateful #quarantinedwithkids #familymemories
We may have just finished celebrating us mamas, but Father's Day is right around the corner! Smitten mamas have found that a film showcasing the abundance of love between their kids and husband is the perfect gift to express gratitude and appreciation for all they do. This touching trailer @sarajanemercer created last year was the ultimate gift to commemorate all the wonderful moments between her husband and daughters. Interested in creating your own? We've been busy over here working on some amazing Father's Day films, and have just two spots left to deliver in time for the big day. DM us today to start the most thoughtful gift for the dad in your kids life. #fathersdaygifts #thoughtfulgifts #replayreliverepeat
This year more than ever, we hope you take the time to recognize yourselves as the superheroes that you are. The past few months have been nothing short of chaotic, challenging, and anxiety ridden, yet we've all embraced the unknown and stepped up to be the best wives, teachers, co-workers, friends, and most importantly mamas we can be during this unprecedented time. Wishing you all a day of well-deserved relaxation and time spent with your loved ones. 📷@jobryanphotography #happymothersday #mothersday2020 #momlife #frontstepsprojectrye
COVID-19 is going to be an event that defines our kids childhoods. While this is a time of uncertainty and challenging times, we as parents have the power to help shape the way our children are experiencing this pandemic. So while this is difficult for us all, now more than ever it's important for us to bend some of the rules, let some of our standards slip, and help cultivate special memories for us all to remember this uninterrupted time we all have together as a family. #familymemories #storytelling #documentyourdays
Wishing everyone hope, positivity, love, and encouragement as we navigate another week during this challenging time together 🌈 📷@ksenia_belanger
Been on the job for 7 weeks now...
The feelings of isolation and loneliness are more present than ever the longer this goes on, but we're so grateful to be able to connect with loved ones near and far through technology. Though connecting with friends and family has an entirely different meaning these days, we've all adapted to survive and come up with imaginative ways to find these virtual connections. This connection is what keeps us going day in and day out. Loving this illustration by the talented @coupdegracefarris that depicts today's new way of expressing love and finding connection in today's world. #quarantineconnection #loveisallyouneed #grateful
Today, more than ever we’re grateful for our amazing 🌏. Feeling hopeful that despite these uncertain times our Earth is taking the necessary time to heal and allow us to re-connect with Mother Nature. 📷 @dstrazz3
What is the lifesaving activity that is getting you through each day right now? For Smitten’s Marketing Director (and her 16 month old sidekick) it has been daily visits to the the Duck pond in downtown Manhattan, where new ducklings are expected to hatch any day now. During this isolating and challenging time, the ducks have really brought together the community and become something families are bonding over. If you live downtown and are looking for an activity to entertain your kids, a socially distanced visit to the pond “fits the bill” (pun intended). #duckpond #lifewithlittles @ Battery Park,New York
YOU ARE DOING ENOUGH. We know these days can be long and tiring. Often we’re left at the end of the day feeling like we’re not doing enough for our kids during this challenging time, questioning our abilities and how this pandemic will affect our kids. But let these images serve as a reminder to each of you - YOU ARE DOING ENOUGH. Sending love and strength to all of you during this challenging time 💕 📷 sweet photo shared by a dear friend of Smitten who is “passing notes” with her 6 year old daughter during quarantine.
Distance learning: the new norm. This shift in learning has forced us all to adapt to a new way of life. We've had to create a new routine, modify the method in which our kids our learning, and for some of us brush up on subjects we haven't visited in a very long time. It's a challenging time for all of us, which makes it that much more important to be forgiving to ourselves. Your kids won't remember if things aren't going as smoothly has you wished, and likely will celebrate the extra screen time that might be needed if you need to spend some time getting reacquainted with 5th grade science 😂. They're going to remember how you made them feel safe and loved, when they might be feeling anxious. Setting a daily schedule, being patient (with yourself and your kids) and familiarizing yourself in advance with some of the topics being covered the next day are what we at Smitten have found to be helpful during this difficult time. Share below helpful tips that you've found successful in your new role as a teacher. #distancelearning #newnormal #gratefulforteachers
Wishing everyone a very happy Easter and a day filled with creating new holiday memories together 🐰
Grateful to all the heroes who are on the frontlines fighting this pandemic ❤️ THANK YOU 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 #nyctough #clapbecausewecare #healthcareworkers
This photo is of a text exchange between a client and founder, @lisa.k.ridd. During this difficult time our client has found joy in reliving their family memories by watching their Smitten films together, something we're so grateful we are able to provide. Whether it’s revisiting old videos and photos, watching home videos, or reflecting on your favorite family moments, we hope you spend some time with your loved ones enjoying all the memories you’ve created together and continue to make more! We're grateful that our business model has always been a remote one, so we are able to continue working on projects for our beloved customers during this time. We encourage you to contact us about creating a film for you and your family. #enjoyyourmemories #familytime #replayreliverepeat
During this uncertain and unsettling time, it’s so important to support each other and to do what we can to help those in need. As a women-run company comprised of mothers, we feel especially compelled to encourage and inspire all of the moms-to-be who will not be able to have any loved ones present during their labor and delivery due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In partnership with @unionsquareplay, we’re seeking your help to act as their virtual cheerleaders. We are asking for short video clips providing encouragement for these brave new moms. Please send your videos to [email protected] with subject line: "You are not alone". We will edit and compile your messages to share with moms around the world who need this extra support right now as a reminder that they are not alone. #youarenotalone
We hope you all got some much needed R&R this weekend. While many of us are focusing much, if not all, of our energy on our kids, it’s also equally important during these stressful times that we care for ourselves as well. So catch up on that must read, get the bubbles out for a relaxing bath, or pour the extra glass of 🍷, but make sure you’re taking time for yourself during this difficult time. #metime #recharge #mamatime
It’s the first day of spring and even though we are navigating extremely challenging and unprecendent times, we hope you find the time to reflect on the positive and spend the afternoon outdoors with your kids. With record high temps and the rain stopping shortly, today is the perfect day to get all the energy from the week out and go on a long walk, take a bike ride with your kids, or engage in some friendly competition and build an obstacle course - winner gets to choose the next activity! Don’t forget to take videos and photos of these memories 📸Wishing everyone a safe and healthy weekend filled with creating new memories together. #familytime #familymemories #replayreliverepeat

As we continue to re-visit Smitten's core values, one of our favorites is 'more dance parties'. These days with spending our time indoors, we're forced to think a bit outside the box. In between helping with school work, let's show our kids that while many things are unknown at the moment, we can still have fun! Inspire your kids to pretend play, set up a family picnic on your living room floor, have dance parties, and keep those bedtime reading snuggles coming. #moredanceparties #familymemories #replayreliverepeat
Today more than ever we’re grateful to celebrate the simple. As we’re re-visiting our core values this month, it’s during the uncertain times like these that we’re reminded that it’s the little moments that bring the purest joy. Whether it’s your baby’s giggle, your toddler ‘reading’, or your children playing together, these are the moments you’ll treasure forever. Thank you @motheruntitled for sharing this sweet moment that captures this statement so perfectly.
Recently Smitten's founder, @lisa.k.ridd, had the privilege of sitting down with @theideamix to speak to her journey of launching Smitten Films, the challenges she's overcome, and what she's learned along the way. As we listen to her podcast and are reminded of how far Smitten has come, from Lisa hiring the first employee 2 1/2 years in, to now overseeing a team of mom's behind Smitten's storytelling, we couldn't be more proud to call her our fearless leader. Check out our stories to hear from our founder and get a sneak peek from her recording session with BTS footage. Link in bio for the full episode. #motivationalmonday #entrepreneurlife #fearlessleader
The ultimate, but most rewarding, commitment 👶🏼 #truth #realtalk #parentingquotes
At Smitten Films we champion all moms. We listen to their stories and we tell their stories. We’re proud to offer moms flexible work schedules. Finding a work/life balance after having children can be difficult, and we’re grateful to provide this gift to Smitten’s working mamas. 📷 @nickiesebastian #replayreliverepeat #whoruntheworld #mamapower #womensupportingwomen
It’s hard to believe February is over and it’s already time for our next “Moments into Memories with Smitten Films” feature. This month’s client has made multiple films with Smitten and uses our Monthly Footage Transfer Program to stay on track throughout the year to help with the thousands of videos and photos she and her husband take on their phones. With every vacation they embark on, every birthday they celebrate, and every sweet bonding moment these two little ones enjoy, it’s so special to have it all captured in a Year in Review film for their family to treasure forever. Each year a new set of memories are created, and we absolutely love watching this family grow. #replayreliverepeat #yearinreview #familymemories
We're nearing the final days of our February promotion! If you're like us and have thousands of adorable videos and photos like this from your child's first year, contact us today to get started on a First Year Film.

We know how exhausting and hectic it can be right after delivery, but we promise you won't regret capturing those initial sweet moments with you, your partner, and your new baby in the hospital. One of our favorite tips we tell clients is to have someone capture video and photos of your new little family right after labor. The emotions are so raw and you can really feel the overwhelming love in the room. Thanks for sharing this intimate and sweet moment with us @ockeydockey #firstmoments #photographytips #newborndays
A first birthday is a milestone, both for parents and a baby. During this first year you and your child experience so many incredible moments and so many firsts for each of you.
